THE REASONING POWER OF CROWDS
Gustave Le Bon,
The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind
It cannot absolutely be said that
crowds do not reason and are not to be influenced by reasoning.
However, the arguments they
employ and those which are capable of influencing them are, from a logical
point of view, of such an inferior kind that it is
only by way of
analogy that they can be described as reasoning.
reasoning of crowds is based, just as is reasoning of a high order, on the
ideas, but between the ideas associated by crowds there are
only apparent bonds of analogy or
mode of reasoning of crowds resembles that of the Esquimaux who, knowing from
experience that ice, a transparent body, melts in the mouth, concludes that
glass, also a transparent body, should also melt in the mouth; or that of the
savage who imagines that by eating the heart of a courageous foe he acquires
his bravery; or of the workman who, having been exploited by one employer of
labour, immediately concludes that all employers exploit their men.
The characteristics of the
reasoning of crowds are
of dissimilar things possessing a merely apparent connection between each
other, and the immediate generalisation
of particular cases.
It is arguments of this kind that are always
presented to crowds by those who know how to manage them.
They are the
only arguments by which crowds are to be influenced.
A chain of logical
argumentation is totally incomprehensible to crowds, and
for this reason it is
permissible to say that they do not reason or that
they reason falsely and are not to be
influenced by reasoning.
Astonishment is felt at times on
reading certain speeches at
their weakness, and yet they had an enormous influence on the crowds which
listened to them, but it is forgotten that they were
intended to persuade
collectivities and not to be read by
in intimate communication with a crowd can
evoke images by which the crowd
will be seduced.
If he is successful his object has been attained,
and twenty volumes of harangues -- always the outcome of reflection -- are not
worth the few phrases which appealed to the brains it was required to convince.
It would be superfluous to add that the powerlessness of crowds to
reason aright prevents them displaying any trace of the critical spirit,
prevents them, that is, from being capable of discerning truth from error, or
of forming a precise judgement on any matter.
Judgments accepted by
crowds are merely judgements forced upon them and never judgements adopted
In regard to this matter the individuals who do not
rise above the level of a crowd are numerous.
The ease with which
certain opinions obtain general acceptance results more especially from the
impossibility experienced by the majority of men of forming an opinion peculiar
to themselves and based on reasoning of their own.
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through
distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population
has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite
that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
